Victims are typically only given a year, sometimes just months, to live after an initial diagnosis.  Since there is no cure for mesothelioma, scientists and researchers are continually looking into treatments, therapies, chemotherapy drugs and vaccines – anything to help victims survive.

Scientists Focus on Enzymes and Proteins to Develop New Treatments

This enzyme, known as orotate phosphoribosyl transferase (OPRT) is believed to curb the development and spread of mesothelioma which would have a huge impact on treatment development. Scientists tested 15 people with malignant pleural mesothelioma and found that the enzyme OPRT was present; 85% of mesothelioma patients had high levels. Scientists then took a group of patients who were unsuccessful in their treatment Pemetrexed, which is the common chemotherapy drug...
